I was narrowing my choices to (in my budget)


1) Tamron 70-300mm F/4-5.6 Di LD Macro

2) Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 APO DG MACRO

Need your opinion buying tomorrow.

from what i read and seen, the sigma is a better buy. But thats my opinion. I have the sigma 70-300. Its a cheap alternative in many trips when i know i will be roaming in the daylight. Its not a superb lens at low light, but for 80 bucks i paid for the lens, its all worth it )

May be someone using a tamron should help u. Also search the web for a comparison, search in Pbase for pictures and u may get an idea.

The best thing would be to go to a store near by and test both the lenses. take some pictures at 70,100,200 and 300 mm and compare and u may get an idea. Since its a store u can aswell test a couple of copies of the lens's(hopefully)

hope it helps

I've heard great things about the sigma's APO version and the tamron is pretty new os no many reviews on the net, so I need to hear from someone who tried this lens
